18-02-2020 23:25:25


BIOS settings of Seqrite UTM can be established by accessing the device on a serial connection through a console/serial cable (cable having a 9-pin DB supplied with the UTM appliance).

Putty is an open-source SSH and Telnet client, that can be used to setup the serial connection.

The BIOS (Basic Input/output system) is the firmware used for booting the UTM device. For UTM devices to function normally, certain Hardware components like. SSD, Ram, and CF card have to be working. It is the job of BIOS to ensure this.
